Huckabee Blames ‘Tax-Funded Abortion Pills’ For Newtown Massacre

Ugh.

Fox News Host and former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR) doubled down on his claim that the murder spree in Connecticut was caused by removing God from schools, linking the shootings to “tax-funded abortion pills” and society calling “sinful” acts “normal.” Speaking on Fox News on Saturday, Huckabee suggested we should not be surprised “that a culture without reflects what it has become:”

Christian-owned businesses are told to surrender their values under the edict of government orders to provide tax-funded abortion pills. We carefully and intentionally stop saying things are sinful and we call them disorders. Sometimes, we even say they’re normal. And to get to where we have to abandon bed rock moral truths, then we ask “well, where was God?” And I respond that, as I see it, we’ve escorted him out of our culture and marched him off the public square and then we express our surprise that a culture without him reflects what it’s become.

6. I hear God 2.0 will be able to smite gays and abortionists directly

and will be able to pinpoint those who blaspheme.

This first generation God doesn't seem to be all that accurate in His targeting.

4. Pat Robertson, Jr.

This guy has disqualified himself from any public office. He belongs on the 700 Club, sitting right next to Brother Robertson.

14. Heard that very point from someone else today

Huckleberry has thrown his lot in with the most extreme of Bible-thumpers.

He can kiss any political ambitions goodbye now.

15. These guys are living in the 1995 media world

Back then, you could get away with taking extreme positions and then doing the etch-a-sketch thing. Not anymore. It is all out there on Youtube and elsewhere. And the thing about Youtube is that you lose a sense of time. Things that you said 10 years ago, look just like the things you said yesterday. They just don't age away. Ask Governor Macaca. Ask Mitt Romney.

That is one of the most powerful things working for us now. In 2016, Hucky really can be held to account for this nonsense. And he will no doubt spew lots more nonsense between now and 2016.

8. Hucklenutz Makes His Move To Become King Of Crazy...

...remember, he now hosts a daily talk show that is competing with rushbo. There's a good chance next year his bosses at cumulus will put him on big flamethrowers like WLS, WABC, KGO. Looks like he's trying to enhance his "cred" among the great unhinged.

10. This atheist says, "Fuck you, big time."

I have more morals and compassion than these so-called christians who ignore everything Jesus taught and stood for.

16. Many of whom were no doubt "good Christian children"

It would at least make a little sense if he had said that The Devil did that. It makes absolutely no sense to say that God did it.

Isn't Huckabee a Baptist? I thought they believed in this gigantic, endless, intergalactic struggle between God and Satan as a matter of doctrine.
